Igreja de São Baptista

Church in Moura

This 16th-century church has a remarkable Manueline portal. Set against the plain facade, it is a twisting, flamboyant bit of decoration, with carvings of knotted ropes, crowns and armillary spheres. Inside are some fine deep-blue and yellow 17th-century Sevillian azulejos. It’s just outside Jardim Dr Santiago.
